Obama: U.S. One of the Largest Muslim Countries

Gary Bauer: Our president has set off on his pilgrimage to the Islamic world, and truth is already one of his first causalities. Yesterday, in an interview on a French television station, the president observed that the U.S. could be considered “one of the largest Muslim countries in the world.” Obama must be counting Muslims in our 57 states that he claimed to have visited during the campaign. Where the seven extra states are located is still a mystery.

Seriously, the truth is that there are more than two dozen countries with Muslim populations larger than ours. And on a percentage basis, the number of U.S. Muslims is somewhere around 1.5%, making them one of the smallest religious groups in the U.S. France, England, Germany, etc., are more “Muslim” than we are. In fact, there are more Muslims in the nation of Burkina Faso than there are in the United States. (And if you know where Burkina Faso is, go to the head of the class!)

You will recall that on his last trip abroad the president denied we are a Christian nation, even though America was clearly built on Judeo-Christian values and concepts about human dignity and freedom, and our population is overwhelmingly Christian. Now he is trying to sell us abroad as a Muslim nation. The average American should be furious. But it doesn’t end there.

Yesterday, a White House official briefed reporters on the trip and emphasized Obama’s Muslim roots. According to Jake Tapper of ABC, the aide said, “The president himself experienced Islam on three continents…you know growing up in Indonesia, having a Muslim father – obviously Muslim Americans (are) a key part of Illinois and Chicago.”

During the presidential campaign it became forbidden in any way to draw attention to candidate Obama’s Muslim roots. I was interviewed by the BBC last October and found myself in a half-hour shouting match because I dared to use the president’s middle name. Obama himself attacked any suggestion he had Muslim roots. Last September, Obama addressed his origins and said the GOP was trying to smear him. Here’s what he said:
“You know, he’s got a funny name. You know we’re not sure about him. And that’s what the Republicans when they say this isn’t about issues, it’s about personalities, what they’re really saying is, ‘We’re going to try to scare people about Barack. So we’re going to say that, you know, maybe he’s got Muslim connections’…just making stuff up.”
The crowd roared its approval.

Barack Hussein Obama wants it both ways. In his world view, America isn’t a Christian country but it is one of the largest Muslim countries in the world. He doesn’t want anyone to bring up his Muslim roots when they are talking to American voters, but his Muslim roots become the main selling point when he is headed to Cairo and Saudi Arabia.

While You’re There, Mr. President… In a column today in Politico, I urge the president not to ignore the persecution of religious minorities in the Muslim world. I will be watching eagerly to see if he will defend the rights of his Christian brothers and sisters to practice freely the same faith he professes to share.

A Larger Plot? Yesterday, officials investigating the murder of Private William Long were quick to suggest that converted Muslim extremist Abdulhakim Mujahid Muhammad acted alone. However, Fox News reported today that a senior U.S. official found multiple possible targets on Muhammad’s personal computer. Some of these include Jewish organizations, a Baptist church, child care centers, a post office, and other military recruiting centers in the southeastern United States, New York and Philadelphia. This information suggests that Muhammad may not have been acting alone and perhaps was part of a larger terrorist plot.

Once again the liberal media bias has been put on display for the American people to see. Immediately following the murder of George Tiller on Sunday, news outlets around the country suggested the suspect had ties with pro-life organizations. Yet when an innocent American service member is gunned down outside of a recruiting center, the media think it would be irrational to accuse the suspect of having ties to terrorist groups.

The double standard at work in the American media is disgusting. This episode is just one more example of how leftwing political correctness – specifically the media’s denial about the threat of Islamofascism – hurts our national security. We will keep you posted on any new developments in this case. By the way, President Obama has still not commented on this terrorist attack.

I'll bet a lot of those numbers can be directly related to the constant influx of those crossing our borders illegally. The Mexicans are setting aside their original Catholic faith to become Muslim 3:1 from what I have read. Then of course the black culture seems to want to embrace Islam just as readily. A sad state of affairs.

Great numbers of Hispanics will never accept Islam. Young people may be attracted in it - but family tradition will win out in the long run. For Hispanics - family means a great deal.

Some people just burry their heads in the sand and do not search for the truth, I am not referring to those who have commented on this article. I am referring to those who refuse to search and seek. Thanks for posting Bill!! Grateful for those who take the time to read and learn.

I just posted a graph that shows how few muslims there actually are in the US compared to other religions. Turns out muslims make up only 0.6% versus 26.3% Evangelical and 23.9% Catholic. I did read though recently that a large number of Mexico's population is turning to Islam, probably like Anita said...mostly the young (easily influenced and uninformed).

Note that it was Obama being quoted as saying the U.S. is one of the Largest Muslim countries. Maybe in his dreams!
